25 Watts might do something it wasn't meant to do -- and that is portray a boring day just as it should be portrayed: boringly. Although at times having wit and comedy, one cannot help but feel that somewhere between the script and the subtitles the true entertainment was lost.
Although this film contains a lot of original and interesting camera work combined with a pleasantly artistic depiction of daily events, it is only at the cost of excitement. The scenes which one finds to be most exciting are the scenes one finds to be the shortest. The scenes that portray pure boredom seem to always be the longest.
Although the general idea behind it and the hard work put into it may seem good, in the end it is overshadowed by the general boredom. Although it was interesting, it was not entertaining. Although it kept my attention, it did not terribly enthrall me. In the end, the zany characters and moments of excitement do not cut it and leave something lacking.
